The editors say, "Wine Enthusiast Magazine is an indispensable guide to the latest wine trends, ratings and reviews, food and travel, award-winning commentary and much, much more."

What They’re Looking For: The Wine Enthusiast submission guidelines offer the following categories as those that they often want:

  • Trends and innovations in the wine world across multiple destinations or regions and more than one business
  • Wine-centric city guides
  • The story of a grape variety's history and adaptation around the world
  • A wine-drinker's guide to some other beverage category, alcoholic or not
  • Stories that look at the intersection of wine and culture
  • Humorous or serious personal essays centered on a vinous experience

The editors say, "Proposals that don't fall into the above categories but seem to be in line with what Wine Enthusiast has run recently are, of course, welcome, but we recommend keeping them short."

The editors are looking for pieces that work in print and online and appreciate writers letting them know where they think their pieces fit.
